    All this spam..

    So, how many more reports need to get done, before we see all this spam taken care of?

    You're actually filling reports? When I see the spam, I'm like "whatever" and clickity click my way to another site. I'm actually very surprised that a forum section still exists. Extremely surprised. The topics on here are occasionally interesting, and participation is almost non-existent.

    Oh, I almost forgot to ask. Do you know where I can find a variety of non-prescription products?

    No one filed any reports about the recent wave of spam (most recent reports are from Jun). That said, it won't ever really get 'taken care of'; open registration allows spambots to create accounts. Even then, I have been on vacation for a week ...

    MilTimes doesn't link to the forums from their (edit to add: main) pages any longer. There was some talk of advertising on the Forums being linked / tied to advertising sold to the print publications, which was in part the reason for the recruitment of moderators.

    If I had to guess, that the forums still exist is an oversight by Gannett at this point; or built into the rest of the MilTimes and they haven't put thought into getting rid of it ... but long ago stopped maintaining it.

    When I go to AF Times (or mil times), click on News, there's a link to the Forums under "Quick Links"

    Definitely not found on the main pages though.

    yeah ... there used to be a main link on all the pages ... it is semi-buried now.
